The Volkswagen Up is a city specialist, a car for four persons and all languages, for the job, the university, the drive to the beach and the excursion outside the city gates. The Volkswagen Up is a part of the Volkswagen Group New Small Family (NSF) series of models, unveiled at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show. The production Volkswagen follows a series of concept cars, starting in 2007 at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
The Volkswagen concept are designed by Volkswagen Group Chief Designer Walter de’Silva and Head Designer of the Volkswagen Passenger Cars marquee Klaus Bischoff.

Production of the Volkswagen started in December 2011 in Bratislava, Slovakia, and elsewhere, in 2012.
The fact that the engine of the Volkswagen Up runs in the rear has a decisive influence on its exterior design. That is because the Volkswagen Up has no classic radiator grille, this fact alone gives it a great deal of independence. Dominant design characteristics of the Volkswagen are the headlamps that take an inward and diagonal line, between them the horizontally arranged air vents, the VW logo, the tailgate that extends far forward and the smooth bumper with a circumferential black stripe as a detail of the “happyface” that is typical of the new pick up Volkswagen.
The Volkswagen Up interior is designed to accommodate four adults, and features flat-folding, air inflatable seats. Volkswagen Up also has two monitors on the dashboard, one showing vehicle statistics and the other controlling the in-car multimedia system. The Volkswagen is a small car that shows a lot of size, because it offers more space than any other car of similar length (3.45 meters or 135.8 inches) and width (1.63 meters or 64.2 inches).
